GramChitra:

Description: 
GramChitra is the first open source GIS for the masses. It was developed under the aegis of Media Lab Asia (an MIT, Boston Research initiative in India) to collect geographic information data, both spatial and non-spatial using GPS and PDA. GramChitra was successfully used at two pilot sites in Harayana viz., Faridabad and Ballabgarh to prepare house level maps of 40 villages and to collect socio-economic data.
